Yesterday my time when I got to the intersection of MLK and Oakridge was 31 KMPH. This intersection is my first third stoplight on my bike commute. I consider this the official end of my bike commute that is unobstructed by stopping for cross traffic. Today I approached the intersection with an average speed of 27.2 KMPH, but today i was riding into a NE head wind of 8 MPH according to TWC. This is what I consider a training ride as I rode it in my 3-7 gear all the way. The difference a headwind maks, when it is flat I use headwinds as my hill climbing simulator.
